Walt Ranch Vineyard
October 1, 2012

Initial Study (October 2012)

Napa County has initiated an EIR process for the development of 356 acres of vineyard on the approximately 2,300-acre Walt Ranch. Vineyard development activities include removal of brush, trees and associated vegetation in proposed clearing limits, blasting, ripping to depths of three to four feet, rock removal, installing erosion control measures, trenching for irrigation pipelines, installation of trellis system and deer fence around vineyard blocks or block clusters (to minimize impact on wildlife corridors), establishment and maintenance of a cover crop, mulching, planting and maintenance of vines.
